We rebooked by phone several weeks ahead yet when we checked in the dour staff seemed to be highly enthusiastic and we got a very lukewarm reception. We stayed two nights but couldn't sample the restaurant because it was closed, without explanation. Advertised hi-fi was not on the air. There was no housekeeping to our room during the stay -...

We stayed in this hotel for one night during our coastal tour from Melbourne to Sydney. It was the first (Mon)day of the school holidays and we were expecting to stuggle to find accomodation. But much to pur surprise the town was very quiet, including just about all restaurants. This Best Western ended up th only one we could see... More

Stopped in for 1 night on route from Melbourne to Sydney. 1st floor rooms along the front have great views of the Lake. Hotel is close to other restaurants which was handy as their restaurant was closed. We found the room quiet from both adjoining rooms and the road until morning when we could hear the couple next door in... More

Neat and clean with friendly staff... what more could you want for. How about a swimming pool and a restaurant/bar. There are also lots of bars and resteraunts nearby, and shops too. We'd stay here again if we were ever in the area.

Very good location to the restaurants, clubs and shops. All within walking distance. Room was clean but outdated. Towels and bedding need updating. Bed was very uncomfortable,hard and I would say very old. Don't know what the bed replacement plan would be or if there is one. Don't think I would choose this one again.

The room is dated and the towels are completely ratty... They were at end of life about 4 years ago... even if the room is dated some little things like nice linen and luxurious towels can make all the difference. i went to get more milk from reception... no one came, so i rang the bell again and waited.... no...

Comfy clean room with air conditioning and wifi. Mini bar and guest laundry were great after a long hot motorbike ride as was the pool. Convenient (walking distance) to restaurants, clubs, pub and shops. Friendly helpful staff. Off street parking. Beautiful area to explore.

It was windy and the door had a 1/4" gap that allowed cold air in all night. There was a tree/plant with huge leaves that touched the window screen and outside ceiling. The noise from this kept us up all night. The glass shower enclosure leaked and no bath mat was provided making for a slippery and dangerous floor. I... More

We stayed for one night, the room was clean and well appointed. The wifi was completely useless. The checkin was great and the owner did his best to accommodated our request for a nicer room and was helpful with dinner recommendations.

We had a room overlooking the water, so that was nice but there are no divides between the balconies, so they are not private and also very noisy from traffic, and noise coming from other rooms meant we had to keep the doors shut. The room was large, renovated, clean and the breakfast was served hot and well cooked. The... More
